Chelan-Douglas Plan to End Homelessness

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

State House Bill 2163 directed local governments to prepare and enact a 10-year Homeless Housing Strategic Plan with a minimum goal of reducing homelessness by 50 percent. The Bill authorized the County Auditor's Office to collect a $40 recording fee and allows a percentage of the funds to be applied locally to complete tasks and contribute toward meeting goals and objectives identified in the plan.  After developing the local plan, participating jurisdictions signed an inter-local agreement, naming the City of Wenatchee as the implementing agency for the Chelan-Douglas County Program.

A Homeless Housing Task Force, made up of local agency representatives, meets periodically to update priorities for homeless services and programs and reviews progress made on achieving objectives and activities identified in the plan.  The goals, objectives, and activities identified in the plan guide the annual funding allocation. For more information, view the most current plan:
